  2. Click the "..." next to the Google Classroom section.

  3. Click Sync with Google Classroom.

Logging In Students

Students should log in with their Google accounts when their Section is synced with Google Classroom.

If you imported your section from Google Classroom, students do not need to create CodeHS accounts. Syncing your roster will automatically create an account for the students who are enrolled in your Google Classroom section.

To Login with Google

  1. Navigate to > Login.

  2. Click Log in with Google.

  3. Enter your Google login credentials associated with Google Classroom.

Note: If you have back-to-back class periods with shared computers, students may need to log out of a different student's account.
